ISC BIND 9.10.5-S1 < 9.11.5-S6 Assertion Failure Vulnerability

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 124562


The remote name server is affected by an assertion failure vulnerability.


ISC BIND versions 9.11.5-S5 and earlier are affected by an error in the nxdomain-redirect feature in versions which support EDNS Client Subnet (ECS) features. In those versions which have ECS support, enabling nxdomain-redirect is likely to lead to BIND exiting due to assertion failure.


Upgrade to ISC BIND version 9.11.6-S5, 9.11.6-S1, or later.
